"Those who listen to and immerse themselves in OUR MUSICAL WORLD, cannot fail to see -- and hear and feel -- the creative power of people in everycorner of our planet. And... they cannot fail to come up with something new and important themselves." James Loewen, Author: Lies My Teacher Told Me.

 

"The Review Office has reviewed OUR MUSICAL WORLD.It is a beautiful volume, and the CDs provide hours of exciting examples of musical brilliance.  The service you have provided by creating such a wide-ranging analysis is inestimable! The book's application to education, formally or informally is its obvious attraction. Yet imaginative people will, no doubt, find ways to incorporate itscontents into the study of topics beyond music, such as history, sociology, anthropology, languages, and much more." Lynne Yancy, Review Office, National Center, Wilmette, Illinois
